UFC 266 weigh-in results: Nick Diaz makes weight for first fight since 2015, title bouts official

Nick Diaz is officially a day away from his first fight since 2015.

The former Strikeforce champion and UFC welterweight contender successfully weighed in at 185.5 pounds for his five-round middleweight bout opposite Robbie Lawler (184) on the UFC 266 main card Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It was the first weigh-in for Diaz since he fought Anderson Silva in a middleweight contest at UFC 183 in January 2015.

Defending champions Alexander Volkanovski (144.5) and Valentina Shevchenko (124) both successfully made weight for their respective title bouts against Brian Ortega (144) and Lauren Murphy (125). This will be Volkanovski’s second title defense and the sixth for Shevchenko.

All 26 fighters made weight at Friday’s official morning weigh-ins, including Dan Hooker (155.5) and Nasrat Haqparast (154.5). Visa issues cast doubt upon the lightweight matchup throughout fight week, but Hooker and Haqparast both arrived in Las Vegas on Thursday and were able to cut to the lightweight limit to make their bout official.
